It has been written that Mahakasyapa was not Buddha’s “favorite,” still when Buddha held up the flower, out of all the Arhats, Biksus and bodhisatvas it was Kasyapa who smiled and Ananda who waited

Anytime you can get 3 things grouped 1 and 2 and visually experience it as two things before you can make a sentence you can get it.
The answer is in the question, Why does it end? or Why does it begin? even When does it end? When does it begin? What is it that ends? What is it that begins?

I believe Ki-Seto (yellow Seto) was the first high fire kiln for Japanese folk pottery as differed from sophisticated Kyoto style which used porcelain and high fire.
This is a father and son, tokkuri and guinomi, or shuki. When firing Ki-Seto the potter needed to pull it out at the correct time so they made small pieces , set them near the entrance to the kiln and pulled them occasionally to see if the firing was finished.
They pulled out the test piece, put it into water and it turned black, they liked it and called it Seto-Guro.
